Inward And Outward

For the last 4 months, I've only been getting 1 day off a week. With this precious day off, I've learnt to cram a lot into it. Or sometimes not. Just sitting around at home, surfing the net, chatting with friends, then taking a short walk just for some fresh air and a break from the confines of the 4 walls of the shoebox. But today, I maxed the day out I guess.

First had brunch in the park with a takeaway box of dim sum and a latte. A nice blend of East and West. After brunch, went for a walk along the water, north of the bridge. Ogled all the beautiful and multi-million dollar houses dotting the waterfront.

Then had a late lunch at a Thai cafe at 3 pm. Pretty good "boat noodles" which was a rich pork-broth beehoon soup with chunks of braised pork and deep-fried pig skin which was oh so crispy and I ate them all (despite the fact I have never eaten these back home). Walked all the way to the Rocks to have a gelato (honey toffee and malt) overlooking the ferries, then walked home. Didn't even eat dinner tonight.

Had interesting company today. Talked a lot. Made some discoveries. And some evaluations. Did some self-reflecting and feel pretty good generally.
